Same-sex marriage and domestic partnerships had not been recognized in the state of Alabama up until recently. While there may still be controversy looming from the Supreme Court of Alabama, several probate courts throughout Alabama started allowing same-sex marriage licenses to be issued.
Now that same-sex marriage is allowed in Alabama, the prospect for same-sex divorces is on the horizon. The law on Alabama Divorce is extensive and the application of that law to same-sex marriages has not yet been ruled on by Alabama Courts. The equal protection clause allowed for Alabama to issue same-sex marriage licenses and the full faith and credit clause allowed for Alabama to recognize same-sex marriages from other states. Because Alabama still has a long way to go in fully understanding the nuances in the application of divorce law to same-sex marriages, the best assistance you can give yourself is hiring an experienced attorney in domestic relations and family law.
